Palazzo Pants -- A Summer Must-Have

It's the weekend and summer is here! I love loose-fitting, airy, comfortable clothing. Usually my style will be ultra casual, but sometimes we want to dress things up a little. Palazzo pants are the perfect way to do that! Palazzo pants certainly fit the criteria of being loose and airy, if you get the right material. The pants I am wearing here are definitely loose and airy! I love the navy blue and white print! It looks so crisp and clean with a white tee or a navy blue jacket.

I'm going to go from more dressed up this time down to the ultra casual style that I'm known to be kicking around in most of the time. First we have the pants paired with a navy blue jacket that I acquired quite awhile back as part of an outfit. I knew I wanted to keep the jacket because it's so lightweight and easy to care for. The top that went with it and the pants are long gone. But here we have these palazzos to bring that jacket back into the rotation! I also had a quilted bag that I don't use too often at all, but the bag brings out the navy blue of the jacket and the lighter blues of the pants. So the contrasting print seems to work out, what do you think?

Believe it or not, this past week has been rather chilly, the temperature dipped down into the 40's overnight and didn't get above the 50's. So the long-sleeved sport shirt purchased at Costco this past winter was great to wear with the pants. It was actually a casual look, but when paired with heeled sandals, it passed for something you could wear shopping or out running errands.

Finally, my most loved and comfy look--the basic white tee worn along with the palazzos and some flip flops! As you can see the pants have some extra length on me when not wearing a bit of a heel, which I personally don't mind if I'm going casual, at least not enough to hem them. I'm just under 5"5 and they could easily accommodate the length of someone 5"8 or even 5"9. I don't think someone with that height could wear a heel, but easily a great sandal or sneaker would work! I'm usually a medium size and I ordered the medium here (10 - 12). 

The pants are from Cents of Style. They have other prints available as well. I like the elasticized waist and the easy fit. It is made from 100% rayon, a silk alternative so you need to be careful when washing. Wash it on the gentle cycle on cool and never dry it in a hot dryer. To avoid wrinkles, fluff dry it for a few minutes and remove promptly. Follow me on Instagram to see more fashion posts under the hashtag #agalneedsfashion
